Arrived in D.C. today

Haven't been out here since I was a little boy. Should be fun!

In the airport, I saw a Fox News store--the storefront was as glitzy, vapid and devoid of real content as the channel itself. Truly appalling. On the other hand, right next to it I saw an apparel store with touristy crap--but the shirts in the storefront were very political. Three of them were very liberal ("Can't wait 'til 2008"; "Don't Blame Me, I Voted For Kerry", etc.), while only one said "Support our President", and it was hidden.

Don't know if it means anything, but it was interesting point/counterpoint. Should be a fun dynamic to watch in this town.

Reading Markos and Jerome's book "Crashing the Gate" right now (read the first 50 pages on the plane)--it's pretty good so far.

More tomorrow...
